Touring the Movies that Influenced 'The Matrix'

22 July 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

You could do something similar to what editor Robert Grigsby Wilson has done here taking a look at Lana and Andy Wachowski's The Matrix and pointing out all the moments in the film influenced by, or paying homage to, other films, but it is nonetheless fascinating to take such a trip through film and in this case several martial arts features, anime and even a speech from Philip K. Dick. I've included the list of films just below the video, give it a look and enjoy. 0:27 - Fist of Legend (1994) 0:38 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993) 0:44 - Fist of Legend (1994) 0:48 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993) 0:53 - Drunken Master (1978) 1:02 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:09 - The Killer (1989) 1:19 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:21 - Iron Monkey (1993) 1:31 - Once Upon A Time In China (1991) 1:36 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:41 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons »

Crazy, Stupid, Love Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa to Helm Taliban Shuffle Starring Tina Fey

1 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Crazy, Stupid, Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are currently at work on the con-man movie Focus starring Will Smith, but they're already lining up a future project with an adaptation of the memoir Taliban Shuffle.  Per THR, Kim Barker's wartime memoir covers her time "as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan, dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture."  Reading this brief description, my mind flashes to a potentially cool mashup of Three Kings and Jarhead, but Taliban Shuffle seems like a fun story with plenty of room for interesting takes. Additionally, Tina Fey has signed on to star, and Robert Carlock, who worked with Fey as a writer on 30 Rock, handled the script.  While this hints at a more comedic bent, it's important to remember that Fey hasn't »

Kevin Costner Circling Ariel Vromen’s Criminal

18 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Costner comeback continues with news that the Academy Award winner is in negotiations to take the lead role in the sci-fi thriller Criminal – currently being developed by Millennium Films. The film would see the actor as an unpredictable and dangerous character, who finds himself in the unusual predicament of being needed for action on the government side of the law. The knowledge and skills of a deceased CIA operative are implanted into his brain, and the shadowy organization asks him to finish the mission.

Criminal has Ariel Vromen attached to helm the project. Having made his first feature film – Simple Lies – in 2005, his most high profile directorial (and co-writing) effort to date has been 2012’s The Iceman – the true story of a contract killer – starring Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer.

Though the plot synopsis perhaps sounds like a Bourne Identity meets Strange Days kind of story, »

David S. Goyer Boards James Cameron’s ‘Fantastic Voyage’

2 May 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Who would you want to direct an action-packed journey around the human body? While I’m tempted to say David Cronenberg, the answer “James Cameron” is probably the more solid proposition and just as well, as his remake of 1966′s Fantastic Voyage has reportedly shifted a little further along the digestive tract with the news that David S. Goyer is on treatment duty.

The story concerns a team of scientists who are miniaturized onto a tiny submarine and despatched into the body of a defected Russian scientist to ensure his survival and obtain his secrets. Richard Fleischer’s original film featured the eclectic casting of Raquel Welch (One Million Years BC) and Donald Pleasence (Halloween) and had the distinction of being novelized by sci-fi master Isaac Asimov (I, Robot). An interesting parallel to Cameron, who hired respected author Orson Scott Card (Ender’S Game) to write up The Abyss back »

Batman Goes Retro in Bruce Timm’s “Strange Days”

14 April 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Animator and producer Bruce Timm hasn’t worked on a Batman animation since 2004, but this year is the Caped Crusader’s 75th anniversary, and DC is making sure we know it by offering all kinds of exclusives and events—among them a black and white, classic-style short by Timm himself: Strange Days.

Check out the length of Batman’s ears. Now that’s 1930s.

To see Timm talk about the development of the short, you can watch this DC “All Access” clip:

Timm co-created the Emmy-winning Batman: The Animated Series, which is still widely believed to be the hero’s best onscreen representation—and I have to agree. It’s the closest I’ve seen to a real Batman comic-in-motion, movies included (sorry, Christopher Nolan), although that might change if somebody just asked Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo to direct a Batman movie.

Bruce Timm is also scheduled to take »

Watch Bruce Timm’s Batman 75th anniversary short Batman: Strange Days

11 April 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Wednesday Cartoon Network celebrated the 75th anniversary of Bob Kane (and Bill Finger’s) Dark Knight Detective as Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm reunited with the Caped Crusader for a three-minute animated DC Nation short entitled Batman: Strange Days.

Recounting a lost tale from Batman’s past, Strange Days sees The Dark Knight tracking a strange giant to the mysterious lair of one of his longest-serving villains, Dr. Hugo Strange, who made his first appearance way back in Detective Comics #36.

If you missed the short, or you’re not from the States, then fortunately it has now made its way online, and it’s really rather splendid. Take a look for yourself…

First Look at Bruce Timm's Animated Batman Short "Strange Days"

3 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

These images give us our first look at Bruce Timm's animated short "Batman: Strange Days," which is supposed to air on Cartoon Network's DC Nation on April 9th, 2014. Timm produced the short as a part of Batman's 75th anniversary. 

A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious layer of Dr. Hugo Strange.

The short has a very 1940s film noir influence, with black-and-white aesthetics creating an old school crime drama vibe.

This looks like it's going to be a really cool short, and I'm looking forward to watching it.

Who Is Marvel’s Doctor Strange?

22 March 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggath!  If you even remotely recognize this statement, you may be familiar with Marvel’s biggest practitioner of the mystic arts, Dr. Strange.  Dr. Stephen Strange is currently the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe and ruminations have been coming in hard and fast about the good doctor in relation to the Marvel movie landscape.  It would seem at this point, with rumors ranging from Marvel bringing in Johnny Depp to discuss the character to Marvel studios looking at various directors to helm the project, that it’s not a question of if Strange will find himself joining the ranks of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, but when!  Don’t know much about the Master of the Mystic arts? Well strap on your Eye of Agamotto and dig out your Wand of Watoomb from the closet, because Collider has you covered. Hit »

Steve McQueen paves way for artists to break the boundaries

8 March 2014 4:12 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Oscar-winning director of 12 Years a Slave has pushed back the boundaries of film because of the fearlessness that comes with a background in art

When the director Steve McQueen was an art student learning basic film-making skills at Goldsmiths College, London, he joked he was already aiming for the time when his name would eclipse that of his glamorous namesake, star of The Great Escape and Bullitt. "One day," he told his tutor, Professor Will Brooker, "when people talk about Steve McQueen, I am going to be the first person they think of."

Now, with an Oscar for his film 12 Years a Slave, the transition from Turner prizewinning artist to celebrated director has been made in style. It is a path to cinematography also taken by the British artist Sam Taylor-Wood, nominated for a Turner prize in 1998 and now editing her high-profile film of the erotic bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey. »

Tina Fey Gets Her Solo Starring Movie With ‘The Taliban Shuffle’

21 February 2014 4:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

While Tina Fey has made her mark in the film world through a number of movies even before she ruled the proverbial comedy club as Liz Lemon, her film career has been characterized by two important factors: those movies have often been flops, and she hasn’t gotten her due time as the star of her own vehicle yet. Obviously, Fey gets top billing whenever she’s in a film, but it’s often shared with the likes of another extremely likeable comedian who’s there to split the limelight — and a little bit of the downfall, if we’re going to be honest — when it comes premiere time: Paul Rudd (Admission), Steve Carell (Date Night), and Amy Poehler (Baby Mama). Now Fey finally has the chance to shine on her own with a film that she’s also producing alongside Lorne Michaels. The Taliban Shuffle is an adaptation of journalist Kim Parker’s book “The Taliban »

Re-Viewed: Kathryn Bigelow's vampire gem Near Dark

21 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Near Dark opens with a close-up of a mosquito siphoning blood from an arm. Like the vampires - who, notably, are never referred to as such in the film - that haunt the velvet shadows of Kathryn Bigelow's 1987 picture, the mosquito feeds on blood in order to exist, no more, no less. But another comparison presents itself.

"When we realised we were going to have a live mosquito interact with one of our actors, we had to grow that mosquito so that there were no contaminants. That was a six-month process," Bigelow tells us on the DVD commentary. The same applies to the movie's mythology. Near Dark strips away gothic elements (crucifixes, holy water, stakes through hearts) and supernatural hokum (transformations into bats, etc) to offer a spare tale of love, family and survival. It's a vampire movie, but clean and purpose-built.

Back in the mid-'80s, Bigelow wanted to make a western. »

Tina Fey To Star In And Produce Middle East-Set Feature 'The Taliban Shuffle'

20 February 2014 3:31 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Tina Fey spent years as the star of her own show, playing Liz Lemon for seven seasons of 30 Rock, she doesn't have that much experience as a film's solo lead. She has been paired with some very funny people, from Amy Poehler in Baby Mama to Steve Carell in Date Night to Paul Rudd in Admission, but has never really had to carry a movie herself. Her latest project,according to The Wrap, may be her first chance to do just that. Fey is now attached to both star in and produce The Taliban Shuffle, an adaptation of journalist Kim Barker's book "The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan". Robert Carlock, who collaborated with the actress/lead writer for years on 30 Rock, is penning the script, which follows Barker (Fey) back in 2002 as she travels on assignment to Kabul, Afghanistan.

Tina Fey Will Star in The Taliban Shuffle

20 February 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tina Fey will star in and produce the movie The Taliban Shuffle, based on journalist Kim Barker's memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to the Wrap. Fey's frequent collaborator Robert Carlock wrote the adaptation, which traces Barker's experience as a war correspondent. It might not sound funny ha-ha, but in its 2011 review of the book, the Times wrote that "[Barker] depicts herself as a sort of Tina Fey character, who unexpectedly finds herself addicted to the adrenaline rush of war."
